The world we live in is changing rapidly and technological advancements are at the heart of this. We know that the use of the internet, mobile phones and online Apps and games are rapidly becoming the norm and children have access to these from a young age. At Allington, we believe in equipping the children with the skills to use technology safely to ensure that they are digitally responsible.
At our school online safety is taught as part of our Citizenship and Computing curriculum.We have dedicated lessons to promote responsible internet use, as well as talking to the children about ensuring their use of technology is safe.
We have included links to support both children and parents with online - safety concerns.These of course can be discussed with Mrs Howson, our named Online - Safety Lead.
When developing policies and procedures, we follow online safety guidance provided to us by Kent County Council and the Education Safeguarding advisor.Our Online Safety policy is held within the policies section of the website - this policy is reviewed annually.
